Our Philosophy

    Montessori education is distinguished by developing a nuturing environment, independence, confidence, and development of freedom and discipline. Our programs are designed using the Montessori philosophy and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori which emanates out of respect for the child. We offer each child a "prepared environment," which allows him or her to develop individually at their own pace, according to his/her potential in a non-competitive atmosphere.    

    As Dr. Montessori observed, the child from birth to six years has an "absorbent mind," is interested in facts, and has a need for "self-construction." Children internalize concepts through movement and repetition, the use of their senses, and the manipulation of concrete objects.

Our Programs

Montessori students hule    Calvary by the Sea Montessori School offers a Toddler Program (2 yrs), Primary Program (ages 3-6 years), and Enrichment Programs. We also offer an after school program.    

    For the Toddler Program, the adult and child are co-workers in experiencing daily life. The adult in the environment is sensitive to the "teachable moments" and expands the experience to its fullest potential for learning.

    The Primary Program prepares the students for reading, writing, and mathematical concepts, as well as daily living skills, refining the senses and motor skills. On a daily basis, the child works individually, in small groups, and in large groups.
